Rockstar is once again warning eager fans of Grand Theft Auto V that there is no way for normal peasants like them to try out the beta of the coming Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC version of the game. No matter what they do, regular gamers will not get in. No begging, cajoling, or pleading will result in a shiny new beta code emailed to them. Websites purporting to have beta codes are not legitimate. The only way to officially play the game is to buy the old and busted Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 versions, which prior to launch also spurred similar fake beta access scams.
“If you see ads or solicitations to join a beta program, beware as this is likely some type of online phishing scam.”
Grand Theft Auto V for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will launch on November 18th. The PC version is scheduled to release on January 27th of 2015. You will not be in the beta.
